With its “Helping Hands” project, BASF is taking an unbureaucratic approach to closing the supply gap: the company is providing hand disinfectant free of charge to hospitals in the Rhein-Neckar metropolitan region. SchĂŒtz welcomes and supports this exemplary project initiated by its long-standing customer and is supplying every second IBC for this project free of charge.

For the temporary production at the group’s main site in Ludwigshafen all legal and technical conditions had to be met as hand disinfectant had not been part of the BASF product range in the past. The company has the necessary know-how and some of the raw materials for production. The raw materials in stock were reassigned at short notice and further still required raw materials were purchased externally. The IBCs for the disinfectant were supplied by SchĂŒtz. These IBCs comply with the latest packaging safety requirements for sensitive hygiene products.

In support and recognition of this project, the company is supplying every second container without charge to BASF. To facilitate the additional capacities and ensure the necessary supply security, production at the headquarters in Selters is now running at full speed on the weekends. As an environmentally friendly bonus, the IBCs are collected free of charge from end users by the SchĂŒtz Ticket Service and recycled internally as part of the sustainable reconditioning process. The demand is so high that BASF is now successively expanding its production and supply scope: after initially supplying hospitals with intensive care and ventilation facilities, the disinfectants are now also being supplied to medical practices. Depending on current daily availability, BASF intends to gradually roll out supplies to other areas of the health care system in the Rhein-Neckar region.
